From the Publisher: MY KISS CAN KILL.
I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that’s changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone’s soul…or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don’t…I hurt myself.
Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I’ll kill him. Then there’s another boy, one I can’t hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They’re both part of a team of angels and demons that’s joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I’ll be able to help Bishop-or if I’m just another part of the darkness he’s sworn to destroy….
When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising…

Wheeeeee I got blurbed in the beginning for book 1!!! Oh wait, this isn’t about me. Right. I *just* finished this book I am processing just how much was going on. Holy cow! There was a lot of stuff packed into these 400+ pages. It has been a fantastic ride and I’m still having all the feels….
In this installment Samantha is now a gray, someone who craves souls so deeply that if she doesn’t feed she feels like she will go crazy. She has an especially intense craving to feed from Bishop, but it would kill him if she went too far. GAH! That storyline is intense but at the same time there is something terrible going on in Trinity, the city where Sam lives, and the road to saving so many lives ends up being in her hands.
So much has changed for her in so little time. She actually keeps it together considering the amount of stress she is under. I was totally impressed with her.
He is bad, very, very bad
and I would like to do very bad things with him. He holds a serious amount of hatred towards his brother. Not gonna lie…. I loved, loved, loved how he “helped” Sam.
*whispers* I probably loved it a little more in the first book, but this one was still so desperate, I really could feel the crave. Very frustrating, but it honestly wasn’t an option to give in to the lust.
Twists and Turns:
No major ones and I predicted who the bad guy was and his relation to the whole situation. That’s ok! While I do love surprises there was enough going on and a wrench in the whole story would have thrown me off. There were no major double crossings either.
Sometimes there was so much going on I felt like we were going in circles. However, it all did work out, it was just a very long road getting there. So was it worth the ride? Yes. Really, I’m just being a little nit-picky here.
*wipes brow* omg, thank you, Michelle. I loved it. It was perfect.
A million times yes. This is still a dark and gritty story (my favorite type!), and the line between angels and demons almost gets blurred. How the author does it, I’m not even sure! I suppose that is the genius in it. I love Michelle’s writing style, as well as the characters and world she has opened up to me. Happy reading!
